What kind of file are you working with?


Any chance it just doesn't have a design view to see?

I'm pretty sure DW8 still treated "non-design" file extensions (like .txt) as text(code)-only.

DW8??  Ugh, that's an oldie — circa 2005 & built for ancient operating systems (Win XP and macOS 10.3).

I'm surprised DW8 still runs. Which operating system do you have?

A lot has changed in 16-17 years.
